Ann King Edward Med Uni Jan ;10(4):432-3.

In this study ninety male albino rats were selected and were divided into six groups on the basis of different diets given. Control group (I) was fed on synthetic diet and experimental groups (IIA, IIB, IIC, IID and IIE) were fed on I mg aspirin, 15 mg, 30 mg, 45 mg Nigella sativa per kg body weight respectively while HE was given 30 mg Nigella sativa and I mg aspirin/kg body weight. Blood samples were collected by heart puncture and coagulation parameters were done. BT was prolonged in groups taking aspirin only. APTT was reduced significantly in groups taking different concentrations of Nigella sativa when compared with the control. Percentage of clot retraction was weak significantly in groups taking aspirin only when compared with other groups of male albino rats.
